  • Our resident expert Rhett Schober and good friend Scott show off a double Tarpon hookup on the mangrove flats. Not only is the fishing great but their is also great birding and you might have a chance to see a few Crocodiles!

  • A nice Fly caught this Jack Cravelle by David Burks! This fish was caught on the ocean side of the bridge at Boca Paila. Boca Paila is one of the best places in the world for "do-it-yourself" bonefishing. You can certainly hire a guide but if you have some experience you can drive down and get on the flats without a boat.

    A huge Jack Cravelle by Rhett Schober. This fish was caught on the beach at Boca Paila on a Chartruese Deceiver. Walking the beach either north or south of the cut at Boca Paila will put you in line with the giant Snook and big Jacks that cruise the beaches. Remember that you need big shock tippet for Snook.

    Tarpon Baby! The Tarpon fishing north of Cancun is excellent. These aren't the 100lb monsters like Florida but any Tarpon between 10 and 60 pounds is a gas on a fly rod. Rhett would be happy to arrange a trip for you or he might even go with you.
